Newsom’s Appeal Now: Tracking California Bills Passed in the 2022 Legislative Session | State and Region

After eight months, California’s legislative session ended on September 1 with a final flurry of frantic activity. Lawmakers rushed to pass hundreds of remaining bills before the clock struck midnight on August 31. On a few select measures, with emergency clauses that allow them to take effect immediately after the governor’s signature, votes stretched into the wee hours of the following day.

Not all of the contentious proposals made it past the gauntlet: bills to cap bail fees, allow legislative staff to unionize, and preserve california’s concealed firearms limits everything ended in a defeat in the last hours. And a bill that would have allowed teenagers to get vaccinated without parental permission was withdrawn without a vote.
